Highland Park 16yo Tattoo Bottling Note
Highland Park's Twisted Tattoo combines whisky aged in Spanish Rioja wine seasoned casks with whisky aged in first-fill bourbon casks - a wonderful combination indeed! Inspiration for this one came from the Viking legend of the Midgard Serpent, which got itself twisted around the world to bite its own tail. You can even see said serpent on the bottle's label, designed by tattoo artist Colin Dale.
